The very high avalanche danger in the Bulgarian mountains continues! Big spontaneous avalanches on some slopes (slabs...), also spontaneous avalanches in FORESTS! There is a very week combination of layers below all the slabs and new snow from the previous 10 days...
Unfortunately 2 dead people in the last weeks, one of them in forest terrain!
Below are just some images from avalanches on very popular slopes:
At last, the winter came... With several snowfalls, strong winds and bitter cold. Some already enjoyed good powder runs, some are still waiting (for what?). We greet all of you skiing or touring somewhere out there and use the opportunity to make a warning for avalanche danger on steep lee slopes like those next to "Platoto" run on Bansko, "Markudzik 3" on Borovets and most of the terrains above "Aleko" on Vitosha.
On the 11 October 2008 the Bulgarian Extreme and FreeSkiing Association (BEFSA)celebrated 10 years from its creation!
10 years ago a bunch of "free-thinking" young Bulgarian skiers gathered in a small cafe to finally agree and create a small organization, that had to fight for their interest and try to promote their favorite sports!
International Big Mountain Competition, Bulgaria, 18-22 February 2009
International Big Mountain Competition will take place on some of the steepest slopes in Bulgarian Mountains from February 18 to 22nd 2009. The best Bulgarian freeriders will compete with some of the most experienced world freeride skiers taking part in this event.
The Volkl Freeski Open by the Royal NZ Air Force is back bigger than ever!
2008 will see the VOLKL NZ Freeski Open by the Royal NZ Air Force stepping it up to a level which rivals that of the world's biggest freeski events. With a complete athlete focus and international team of organisers this will undoubtedly prove to be the best freeski event to be hosted in the Southern Hemisphere.
